Moderation Workshop for Y2 and Y3 Teachers Karen Samples
KS1 Teacher Assessment Model The aim is to make a rounded judgement that Is based on knowledge of how a child has performed over time and across a range of contexts Takes into account strengths and weaknesses of the child’s performance Is based on a ‘best fit’ model Is informed but not determined by test/task results
What Do Teachers Have to Assess? A level for speaking and listening (no sub levels) A level for reading and writing (sub levels apply at L2 only) An overall level for maths (sub levels apply at L2 only) A level for each attainment target in science (no sub levels)
Use of tests and tasks Reading L1 task L2 task or test L3 test Writing L1-3 task Maths L1 task L2 test L3 test Tests/tasks help to inform teacher assessment but do not determine overall TA judgements
Best Assessment Practice Whole school systems are in place Assessment opportunities are planned In addition, ongoing assessment opportunities are seized across the curriculum In school moderation is a key feature External moderation is also used Tests and tasks are used appropriately to support teacher assessment Assessment informs teaching and learning P scales are used to assess children working below Level 1 Tracking systems are accessible and used appropriately
Please Don’t Rely almost solely on the tests and tasks to determine pupils’ levels Rely on ‘gut feelings’ in reading Rely on supported pieces of work to judge levels Try to do it all on your own!
KS1 Teacher Assessment Moderation Schools will receive an LA external moderation visit at least once every 4 years Purpose of visit is to check the teachers’ understanding of standards and look at children’s written work and other evidence from across the year Moderation sample must now be a minimum of 10% across the cohort Moderators will select different children for reading, writing and maths to maximise the number of different children’s work
